Choosing a Jamberry Base Coat

Using a base coat under your wraps is a great way to protect your nails (or ensure longer wear under lacquer).  If you're having trouble deciding which Jamberry base coat to try, here's a visual for you.

Quick Change

Did you see my cute St. Patrick's Day on Facebook?  I'm an Irish girl, for sure.  But now I'm over it, so today I quickly swapped out my St. Patrick's Day shamrocks for a monochromatic mani.

{giveaway} The 2-wrap Jamberry pedi

I absolutely love the feeling of a fresh Jamberry pedi, especially knowing it will last a couple of months.  It's hard to believe you get a full pedi from just 2 wraps.  I'm sure you have seen this diagram floating around Pinterest and Facebook:

{love this look} French manicure accent nail

I was always a fan of acrylic French manicures, but I'm too cheap to maintain them. I LOVE the Jamberry French tip wraps, and I'm just starting to love this trend of wearing it as the accent nail. Normally I would wear all French with one fanciful accent, but reversing it such a cute twist. Jamberry even makes tips in colors, florals, animal prints and more. Here is a direct link to Jamberry French tips.

Basic Jamberry Nails application video showing 4 methods (includingbaggie, rice bag and spoon pusher)

I try to keep my videos short and sweet with loads of helpful tips.  This one is on the longer side but I promise you'll learn a lot!  It covers the popular "baggie method" as well as other options for that final heat/press step.  I'll highlight some of the key points below:

"The Tape Trick" for trimming Jamberry wraps to fit odd shaped nails (with video)

Every once in a while, someone will have that one funky nail -- maybe it's a little crooked or maybe the cuticle is a bit tapered.  I have a nail like that (tapered) so sometimes I trim one of the larger wraps down so it fits perfectly. (Sometimes I'll just use a smaller wrap and have some exposed nail, but I know that would drive some people cray cray).   I can't take credit for the idea, I picked it up from a fellow consultant, but it is brilliant and easy.  You make a reusable template from painters tape or masking tape!  This is really great for big toes which usually have a weird angled slope on one side.  And it's an EXCELLENT way to use the leftover wraps that are too large and trim them down to get a 3rd manicure from a sheet, or if you just need an accent nail.  The video is pretty short (3 minutes), and here's a series of pictures if you prefer:

Helpful tips on how to hold the wrap when applying Jamberry nails

For beginners!  A quick video showing 3 different ways to hold the wrap when applying your Jamberry... the "fold back", the "thumb close up" and the "balancing orange stick".  Your very first application might feel awkward but once you get in the groove you will be a pro before you know it!  Some people use tweezers, too, which I haven't tried yet.  The main thing is to avoid touching the wrap too much because the oils from your fingers can break down the adhesive. After I made the video I remembered a 4th way -- stick it on the end of the cuticle pusher (as pictured above) and this also prevents the wrap from curling too much which can make the application challenging.

What is Jamberry Stylebox?

If you already love Jamberry, you definitely need to know about Stylebox!  StyleBox is a beauty subscription for your nails!  You get exclusive products delivered each month, plus it's discounted AND you get free shipping.  Honestly, if you love Jamberry, you can't  beat it.  

Here's the official video...

So each month you get 2 sheets (or 1 sheet and 1 lacquer) -- at least 1 of the designs is exclusive, sometimes both.  (>>>UPDATE in March, Jamberry announced that going forward both products will be exclusive designs!). They also add a file and an orange stick because you always need more of those.  And sometimes there's another bonus, like this pink lipstick that came in the January box.    

In October we got these cute bonus decals...

You can start with as short as a 3-month plan, and then go month to month (which is what I did).  You can gift your box and even skip a month once per quarter.  If you sign up in a party, the hostess gets credit/rewards on the whole subscription value -- that's why I usually recommend the hostess orders it in her own party.  Are you suddenly feeling like having a party?!   

I know what you're thinking and no, you don't get to pick the wraps.  And yes, there is a risk that you'll get something you don't like.  But I can help you trade if you don't like it, so don't fret! 

When you sign up, you take a quiz to find out your style, but, between you and me, it won't change what's in the box - they're all the same.  But each month they make a cute video with style tips.  Take the quiz here!

Jamberry is cute on short nails too!

Contrary to what you might think, Jamberry nail wraps look super cute on even the shortest nails! They even help nail biters grow out their nails. I just hacked mine off and here's me wearing Sweet Whismy in matte finish.

It all started with...

Seven months ago, after trying Jamberry for the first time, I wrote this post on my cooking/crafting blog... During that time, the post has been pinned/repinned like a gazillion times, and my "new obsession" has turned into a little empire (JAMpire??).
